Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Snowdog Argus Great base for touring the Somme battle fields
This hotel surprised us. We were expecting something much more basic. It was more than adequate for our needs. It is right next to the Amiens Central rail way station. It is only a few minutes from very good cafes and only across the road from a variety of international cuisine restaurants. It also has an very wifi connection which is very reliable with no drop outs.
If you are hiring a car in Amiens it is only a short cab ride to the car hire companies. The hotel's location means it's very easy to drive out of Amiens and into the battle field area which are quite close to the city. The car parking is in a public car park under the hotel and is relatively inexpensive.

Hotel was recommended in a newspaper article and was well justified.
Only negative was the cramped nature of the tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
A solid hotel in a great location.

Would stay again because room improvements look good but would avoid room 516 for the time being

Stayed at Holiday Inn in Arras and found the hotel to be superb, but then stayed at Amiens, the hotel was dearer then Arras but found hotel rooms and corridor outdated and dirty. Stayed with friends in both hotels and they said the Amiens Holiday Inn was the worst hotel they had stayed in. Very disappointed

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Soarer Good budget hotel in great location
We chose this hotel as we were leaving Amiens for Zurich and wanted to be close to the station. We often stay in Holiday Inn and the Express chain as we know we will get a reasonable breakfast and a good comfortable room in a good location.
The staff were friendly and helpful at Amiens and there was a good choice for breakfast.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Skidog58 Average hotel made better by professional customer focussed reception
Basic Holiday Inn Express hotel in a very good location for exploring the town & the restaurants down by the River Somme. Parking is available underground and also in the nearby side streets at a very cheap rate...I paid 2 Euros for street parking for 2 days. Breakfast selection was average for a H.Inn Express but less than average compared say to the Express at Arras where the selection includes hot food and a much greater range.....however the Hotel receptionist was very professional as she was a very good advert for the brand by offering great customer service as if it was her company....always keen to talk through how to get to the best eating areas and some recommendations which turned out to be fully justified...I believe I cant mention her full name personally but only as the person on duty on 03rd & 04th May...so well done Amelie you are an excellent advert for the brand and know your customer expectations. Recommended for a short 1 to 2 day stopover to explore the town and surrounding areas.....before I forget a good WiFi signal as well..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by UncleJohn Satisfactory but soulless
This H.I. Express was up to IHG's usual standard although it was nothing out of the ordinary. The receptionist was very helpful and socialable both on the phone and in person. The city centre location, right by the railway/bus station, is both an advantage and a disadvantage. The advantage is proximity and convenience. the disadvantage is that if you arrive by car you have no idea where to park. The web site directions for guests arriving by car are scant and concise directions would have made our arrival less stressful and tedious after a hard day. Top travel tip: drive towards the hotel with the hotel on your right then turn immediately at the front of the hotel to the right into the slip road access to the underground car park signed as 'Amiens 2'. It is not the hotel's car park but it is directly under the hotel, reasonably priced at 7Euro for 24 hours, and convenient (once you find it!).
Breakfast was fine, in fact very good as far as 'continental' breakfasts go.
